One of the differences between the Lincoln MKC crossover and the MKZ sedan is the replacement of the sliding controls in the MKZ with buttons and knobs in the MKC. Since Lincoln has been suffering in customer satisfaction surveys because of the MyLincoln Tounch system, a change was needed.

This is the best way to go for the future. The next step will be full touch screen's so it's a great way to slowly make that transition by making the overall layout get close to it without being too complex.

I like the look of the interior without the knobs but I understand how that physical buttons and knobs are easier to work with. Maybe they just have to work out some kinks in the touch technology and design before its ready for mainstream.

why?

More touch controls equals more glictchy software equals more people complaining equals bad press equals CR saying lincolns are unreliable because their buttons are fidgety.

No thank you. The automotive public has gone too far, they don't want cars they want cellphones with wheels. They want lane departure and auto braking so when they're busy playing with the tablet in the centre console the car will keep them just as safe as if they had to pay attention.

Isn't technology a lobotomy ;)

this is very true, but unfortunately we'll have to live with it and keep going back to the dealer for what ever fixes they have for it.

yep. pressing wrong buttons

changing the temp and radio station by accident lol

thats why knobs are a bit easier

in the corner of your eye you can spot the knob and turn it without having to take your eyes off the road

plus knobs don't glare like screens do :D
